Subsistence agriculture has always been a part of life in the Galapagos. Today, we visited a small family farm to see how sugar cane and coffee were traditionally grown and harvested. Here we learned how a donkey or people can manually extract the juice from sugar cane, though the process is now mechanized. We then walked into a sugar cane grove to see how it was grown, and sampled brown sugar, coffee, and moonshine. Today, most of the products from this farm are sold on-site, as the family discovered ecotourism to be more lucrative. Despite the desire for self-sufficiency, the Galapagos are shifting to a service economy as tourism grows. In talking with our Isabela guide, we learned that there is tension between locals and tour companies, particularly cruises, that come to the Galapagos for the resources but contribute little toward the local economy. Our study abroad tour puts much-needed money into the economy as the tour leaders arrange for us to stay on-site, eat at local restaurants, and hire local guides. During our travels today, our guide stopped at a small bakery to buy cinnamon and chocolate bread and again at a small farm to buy three watermelons.
